LET Website Papers for Downloading

Because of its importance as a teaching and assessment strategy and as a foundation for career development and social inclusion the LET has launched this website to provide a platform on which ideas will be exchanged and contacts made between all those interested in the uses of learning from experience.

The following papers are being offered to kickstart the exchange process. LET welcomes the opportunity for others to offer to post papers from other sources.
